    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee says the professional networking site LinkedIn will expand its presence in his city by anchoring a high-rise office building that's currently under construction.

    City officials say the nearly 450,000 square feet of office space could accommodate some 2,500 employees.

  • EPA scales back biofuel mandate to reflect reality

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is significantly reducing the amount of cellulosic biofuels refiners will have to prove they blended into gasoline last year, acknowledging that the market lagged far behind government projections.

    The EPA on Tuesday said it was basing its 2013 standard on the 810,185 ethanol-equivalent gallons produced with nonfood plants last year. The EPA had initially predicted that 14 million ethanol-equivalent gallons would be produced last year, only to reduce it to 6 million gallons last summer. The 2007 law creating the mandate envisioned 1 billion gallons of ethanol from cellulosic sources in 2013.

  • Massachusetts issues restrictions for painkiller Zohydro

    BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Deval Patrick has laid out new restrictions for the use of Zohydro, a powerful new painkiller, after a federal judge ruled earlier this month that his attempt at an outright ban was unconstitutional.

    The governor's office said Tuesday that the state will now require doctors to complete a risk assessment and pain management treatment agreement before prescribing any extended-release medication that contains only hydrocodone and is "not in abuse-deterrent form."

    The announcement comes after a federal judge prevented the state from enforcing Patrick's outright ban of Zohydro. In her decision last week, U.S. District Judge Rya Zobel said...

  • Feds investigating brakes on Chevrolet Impala

    DETROIT (AP) — Federal regulators are investigating the 2014 Chevrolet Impala after a driver reported that the emergency braking system activated multiple times without warning.

    The driver says that in one instance, the Impala was traveling at 40 miles per hour with no one in front of it when the brakes activated. The car was struck in the rear by another vehicle. No injuries were reported.

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened the investigation to determine whether the alleged defect is widespread. About 60,580 Impalas of the 2014 model year are on U.S. roads.

    NHTSA investigations can lead to vehicle recalls.

  • Trader Joe's again says no to Portland location

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland Mayor Charlie Hales says Trader Joe's will not be coming to a northeast Portland neighborhood.

    Trader Joe's pulled out of a proposed location in February after some members of the community complained about gentrification.

    Hales tried to get the grocery chain to reconsider, but a company official has told him the decision won't be reversed.

    The mayor said Tuesday he's confident that a similar project will eventually rise on the corner of Northeast Alberta Street and Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
